Another great day running The Budget Holder’s Survival Guide – this time in Cambridge.
Comments from today’s event include (with written permission gratefully received from each participant):
“This is one of the best study days I’ve done! Thank you.” – Anne White, Head of Nursing, Papworth Hospital
“Great! Should have come on this course a long time ago. This has really helped me in communicating with my budget manager. Thank you for a great day! And I did not fall asleep.” – Karen Stagg, Head of Continuing Healthcare, Luton CCG
“David kept the group engaged throughout the session. The session was very informative and fun! Group work and activities fantastic.” – Beverley Husbands, Commissioning Officer, Luton CCG
“The true/false exercise was good and building into the feedback answers the explanation was a useful way of teaching. It’s been a useful day, some consolidation of knowledge, some new learning and an appreciation that in comparison to others I have a great finance team to work with who meet me regularly, support me and listen!” – Nicola Swan, Service Lead Physio and OT Outpatients, Luton and Dunstable Hospital
It’s always interesting to see how people’s confidence in interpreting financial reports can be transformed in just a day.
